One year ago today I received the call that would change my life. One year ago today I found out that I had breast cancer. I remember that day so vividly, where I was, what I was doing, what I was feeling. It was a horrible day.
But today is a day to celebrate, it’s one year later and I am healthy and cancer free. Today I am reminded not only of what I have been through the past year, but also what my family and friends have gone through with me. I am reminded of how fortunate I am to have such a wonderful group of people that love and support me. I am reminded of how much God has blessed me. I am back in Fayetteville with Scott, I have a job I love with an amazing group of co-workers, and I have friends and family all around me. I am healthy, happy, and grateful.
These are the things that kept me going this past year, and these are the things I want to celebrate today.
“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:38-39
